Twelve members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society along with three husbands in tow, gathered at the new Spaghetti Western Pizza Restaurant in the White Sands Mall in Alamogordo, New Mexico for lunch and just for FUN. Really it is to support the young man who has just opened Spaghetti Western in the Mall having moved here from High Rolls, New Mexico just a few miles up the mountain from Alamogordo. We normally get together twice a month, but after our conversation in White Oaks, New Mexico the Saturday before, we decided we needed to support this young man's establishment.
We had such a grand time visiting and talking to people as they passed by. The food was wonderful and I believe it was probably the biggest day his business has ever had. We were situated out in the Mall at tables, but the inside of the restaurant was also filled with customers so he was almost overwhelmed. At any rate everyone got served, the food was delicious and we are hopeful he will be able to solve his problem of no one wanting to work on weekends. With so many people out of work, there just has to be someone who is willing to work on weekends. We are so much in need of good restaurant food here and we want him to succeed!
When the pizza came, it was served on a large rack in the middle of the table, an absolutely lovely presentation and the pizza was huge. I took our table mates up on the offer of tasting their "Islander" pizza (pineapple on it) and it was delicious.
